The Eastern White Pine is Michigan's state tree.
Fast growth at a rate of more than 2' per year, reaching a mature height of 50-80' and a 20-40' spread; horizontal roots. Soil conditions include: sandy to heavy textured, and can tolerate poorly drained soils.
Eastern White Pine is valuable to wildlife. Their pine seeds are loved by black bears, rabbits, red squirrels, and many birds. Due to the dense foliage this conifer exhibits, it provides important nesting habitat for woodpeckers, mourning doves, common grackles, nuthatches, and chickadees. Bald eagles enjoy nesting on top of the largest Eastern White Pine trees. As this evergreen grows, larger birds place their nests closest to the trunk while smaller species such as robins and pine warblers place their nests well out onto the limbs.
